“Tomorrow was made at Qatar Foundation” – that is how Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation (QF), summed up the impact of the organization on Qatar, as its very first days were revisited by those who were instrumental in turning a vision into reality during a special panel discussion aired on Qatar TV on Sunday evening on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of QF.
The Untold Stories of Qatar Foundation saw Her Highness, who envisioned and founded QF in 1995 with the support of His Highness the Father Amir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, give unprecedented insight into why QF was established and the belief that made it happen. Joined by the central figures in QF’s establishment 26 years ago, the panel recounted the plans, challenges, goals, and milestones that lined the path to creating a globally unique ecosystem of education, science and research, and community development.
“Our belief in the success of Qatar Foundation as a project was deep-rooted, despite the challenges and curves that we faced at the beginning of our journey more than 25 years ago,” she said. “In 2005, on the day Education City opened, we promised that tomorrow would be here. And, indeed, tomorrow was made at Qatar Foundation.
“We never looked at Qatar Foundation’s projects, centres, and initiatives as being there to serve a specific geographical area. We thought of it as Arab-Islamic renaissance project, based in Qatar, to promote sustainable development in the Arab world, by creating positive change from an academic, research, and societal perspective.”
